DryvIQ is excited to announce that Purpose Jobs, the largest community of purpose-driven professionals, has recognized our very own CEO, Sean Nathaniel, as one of its Best Purpose-Driven CEOs in 2023.
A DryvIQ employee took the initiative to personally nominate Sean, who was selected by Purpose Jobs for his excellence in the following areas: strategy and vision, communication and transparency, high EQ and empathy, high integrity, and commitment to purpose-driven leadership.
“It’s humbling to be recognized as one of the Best Purpose-Driven CEOs of 2023,” said Sean. “As the CEO of DryvIQ, it’s my honor and privilege to lead an amazing team to win at a mission that matters, at a company where each person can take pride in doing the best work of their lives. To be nominated by one of our team members fills me with gratitude and assures me that we have created a purposeful culture and a great place to work.”
More than ever, people are seeking purpose-driven leadership after the COVID-19 pandemic led to a shift in how employees think about work. According to Gartner, 82% of employees in 2023 say it’s essential for their organization to see them as a person – including their purpose and values – and not just as an employee.
“As a CEO, there’s a great responsibility to lead the company in one direction or another. The ones who lead with purpose find higher talent retention rates, better business outcomes, and higher satisfaction,” said Ryan Landau, founder and CEO of Purpose Jobs. “The future of work is purpose-driven, and these CEOs are amazing examples of how powerful that kind of leadership is.”
Under Sean’s leadership, DryvIQ has become known as a leader in unstructured data management solutions. Sean is an active industry spokesperson in the tech community and has recently been one of the driving forces behind the company’s corporate social responsibility initiative, #DryvingChange. Personally, he’s passionate about helping entrepreneurs build great companies and giving back to his local community. Sean is on the board of multiple companies and plays an advisory role in several others.
Sean Nathaniel joined DryvIQ in February 2022 as Chief Operating Officer, and succeeded Mark Brazeau as CEO in October of that same year. He joined DryvIQ as a highly successful executive with deep operating and scaling experience in high-growth software organizations. Having served in roles in both public and private companies, he has demonstrated measurable results – growing software organizations to well over $300M in annual revenues. Before joining DryvIQ, Sean served as the Chief Operating Officer for CS DISCO (NYSE: LAW) and, prior to that, as Chief Technology Officer for Upland Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: UPLD).
